Willing or preferring is the same with respect to good and evil, that judging is with respect to truth or falsehood.
It is the eve of St. George's Day. Do you not know that tonight, when the clock strikes midnight, all the evil things in the world will have full sway?
As Faulkner says, all of us have the capacity in us for great good and for great evil, for love but also for hate. I wanted to write those kinds of complex character in a fantasy, and not just have all the good people get together to fight the bad guy.
George R. R. Martin
I think people believe I'm some kind of evil dictator sometimes. But I don't much care about that.
America has shown its evil intentions, and the proud Iraqi people cannot accept it. They must defend their rights by any means they see fit.
Muqtada al Sadr
I am not a pessimist; to perceive evil where it exists is, in my opinion, a form of optimism.
It will never do to plead sin as an excuse for sin, or to attempt to justify sinful acts by pleading that we have an evil heart. This instead of being a valid apology, is the very ground of our condemnation.
Guns are evil! And very little good comes from the availability of a bullet designed to kill human beings!
Boldness and decision command, often even in evil, the respect and concurrence of mankind.
Robert Dale Owen

There's a perennial debate about whether the propagandistic tripe produced by establishment media outlets is shaped more by evil or by stupidity. Personally, I think it's both: a healthy dose of each is needed. The system design is malicious, while those who serve as its public face are generally vacant.
There are evil people, and I don't even want to hear those guys speak.
My dad's quite a conservative person, and he brought me up to be very questioning of the commercial world. He looked down on pop culture. I definitely got the impression that pop was evil and that Britney Spears was evil.

What is their potential for evil; what is their potential for wickedness? That's the only time that those characters become interesting to watch.
I think everyone must settle for what is in the parameter of their own rights. No one must have an evil intention toward the territorial benefit or integrity of other nations.
Good and evil do not exist for me any more. The fear of evil is merely a mass projection here and on Earth.
